I'm certain that many of us here own AE shell models.  I have a new pair of walnut shell daltons, and the smell of the shell is very powerful even after about one month.  It is similar to the scent of Alden shell, but distinctly different.  I like the smell but it is very strong.  Anyone here have the same experience??

I have a pair of EG tobacco suede captoes that had a strong that was similar to unburnt tobacco. It was not an offensive smell at all but they did have a very distinctive smell. I'm unsure if actual tobacco is used in the dying process. The smell has faded over the years and I did wash them once last fall which has pretty much eliminated the smell.

I usually prefer double waterlock as well, but this shoe is so comfy, there was literally zero break-in period.

Speaking of comfy, last Friday I wore my 1494s, and this Friday it's 1493, snuff suede.

I kind of like the smell -- it's oily and rich. This is also a pair of shoes that will hold its own against raw denim.

Outstanding pair.  Thanks for the after pictures.  I am officially going to use my color 8 Indys, just received this week, as my winter boots.

Does anyone know where I can find longwings in brown CXL with blind eyelets and a double leather sole similar to these natural CXL from shoemart? I prefer the CXL in brown rather than the natural. I remember that Leffot had longwings in brown CXL, but I wasn't fond of the open eyelets.

A couple interesting Aldens up on eBay in an 11d Aberdeen (I'm not the seller and have no idea who it is). I'm curious as to their provenance given the seller's description.

Tanker Boots ? 

 

Question about the boots that Citishoes sells (model 4020HC)......Their version is on the Barrie last, commando sole. Are these also known as the Tanker Boot ? If not, what might be the differences ? Thanks
